BOEM Launches New Tool – the Marine Minerals Information System

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has just announced the launch of the Marine Minerals Information System (MMIS).

The MMIS is a state-of-the-art tool to assist decision-makers in managing coastal recovery and planning coastal resilience projects.

The release of the MMIS marks a big step forward in BOEM’s efforts to build a National Offshore Sand Inventory, providing offshore sediment data including data and information from 30 years of BOEM-funded research and data from more than 40 partner organizations.

The goal of the National Offshore Sand Inventory and MMIS is to help to reduce response time in disaster recovery and facilitate long-term planning to strengthen the resilience of coastal communities and infrastructure.

Outer continental shelf sand and gravel resources are vital sources of material for the construction of coastal protection and restoration projects, including efforts to protect coastal communities, national defense facilities, and federal and state infrastructure.
